METSI a Senqu-Khubelu Consultants (MSKC) joint venture has brought hope to Kick4Life Academy after it recently handed the organisation a M20 000 donation.

Kick4Life is a registered charity and soccer academy which develops young soccer players from the ages of 12 to 15 into formidable soccer professionals, while helping to further their tertiary education in Lesotho and overseas.

The organisation has already sent five players to the United States of America where they are playing college soccer.

Kick4Life Academy director Lepekola Seetane expressed gratitude for the gesture and said the money will be used to buy a football kit for the club.

“We are grateful to the MSKC for helping make the Kick4Life Academy a world-class experience for these young people,” Seetane said adding: “The money will be used to buy a playing kit for the team”.

“The academy aims to have a wider benefit for the whole of Lesotho by creating future leaders and change-makers who, through their academic studies in fields such as engineering and business, will ultimately contribute to the nation’s sustainable development. We also hope to develop a new generation of male and female Basotho footballers who will be pivotal to the progress of the senior national teams in years to come.”

MSKC chairperson Chris Viljoen said: “Much of a country’s success lies in the involvement of corporates in their communities”.

“Because of the economic power we hold, we can make a real difference. By living and working in Lesotho, we should feel ethically compelled to contribute to the positive development of its people, this is both a duty and a privilege.”

Kick4Life is predominantly a charity and social enterprise, leveraging the power of sport to mobilise social change. It is registered in Lesotho, the United Kingdom, Luxembourg and the US. The academy’s mission is to change the lives and long-term prospects of vulnerable young people, through a wide range of social development activities focused on health, education and support towards sustainable livelihoods.
